Get wet in Mission Beach

You're likely to get wet in Mission Beach. That could mean just a splash in the warm tropical waters of the Coral Sea. Or, it could mean a fully-fledged scuba diving outing into the kaleidoscopic underwater gardens of the Great Barrier Reef. And it's not just the ocean that's liable to throw out the H20. There's also the roaring white-water rapids of the Tully River to conquer, and the misty rainforest tracks of the Djiru National Park. And when it's time to dry off? How about an evening of yoga poses, or even cooking lessons with local Aussie chefs?

UNESCO sites abound in Mission Beach

Mission Beach is hailed as one of the top gateways to the world-famous Great Barrier Reef. This UNESCO-attested wonder can be found stringing its way along the Queensland coast for 100s of miles to the north and south of town, and boat charters and diving excursions out to its multi-colored underwater groves are a must. Meanwhile, the other side of Mission Beach is encompassed by the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Wet Tropics Rainforest _ a land of snapping crocodiles and misty palm boughs, where safaris and intrepid hiking excursions unfold.

Winter warmth in Mission Beach

Mission Beach follows the same seasonal pattern as the rest of Australia _ winters between May and September, summers between October and March. However, because this is a tropical corner of the continent, you can expect hot and humid conditions with high rainfall patterns for much of the year. The trick is to book those Mission Beach vacation rentals for the months of June, July, and August, which is when you'll be able to kick back on the sands and explore the Great Barrier Reef without the worry of storms.

Mission Beach is surrounded by nature

Few places in Australia have the same wondrous natural offering as Mission Beach. If you've been lucky enough to bag Mission Beach vacation rentals on the coast, then it's likely you'll only have to stroll a couple of meters to see the sparkling blue of the Coral Sea, hiding the sprawling majesty of the Great Barrier Reef just a stone's throw from the shore. And in the other direction are the rainforests, popping up with the protected Djiru National Park and Clump Mountain, where lowland woods house rare fan palms and hide stalking southern cassowary _ endangered relatives of the emu.
